About Us

Amanemu embraces the ancient Japanese bathing tradition of onsen, using nutrient-rich thermal springs to provide a contemplative and restorative retreat set among serene natural surroundings.

Location

Amanemu is set within Ise-Shima National Park on the Kii Peninsula, in the southwestern region of the island of Honshu. The resort overlooks Ago Bay, known as the Bay of Pearls – a blue expanse dotted with oyster rafts and islets.

By CAR: Distance by car is approximately 124 miles (2.5 – 3 hours roughly on highway)

By TRAIN: From airport, head to Nagoya Station (approx 20 minutes); at Nagoya Station, change to train for Kashikojima (approx 2 hours 10 minutes) to Amanemu. Total time 2.5 hours – 3 hours.

By HELICOPTER: Concierge delighted to arrange from Nagoya Airport (30 minutes directly to Amanemu from the airport).

Discoveries

Ancient pilgrimage routes wind through forests, and some of Japan’s most sacred shrines are within easy reach – including Geku Shrine, dedicated to the deity of clothing, food and shelter, and Naiku Shrine, devoted to the goddess of the sun.

Wellness

Two large onsen bathing pavilions are complemented by a watsu pool, four treatment suites, a gym and a yoga studio.

Dining

Japanese cuisine at The Restaurant uses local produce, including fresh seafood and the renowned Matsusaka Wagyu beef.

Best of the Best

Experience the curative powers of Amanemu. Its 21,500-square-foot spa centers around a mineral-rich onsen (there are two private pavilions, as well), fed by salt-infused springs from Ise-Shima National Park. Indeed, each of 28 lavish, low-slung villas has its own onsen, along with walls that open to tranquil Ago Bay or the surrounding forest. Practice yoga on the outdoor platform, witness a prayer ceremony at the Ise Grand Shrine or go fishing with a local angler and have the chef prepare fresh sashimi from your catch. The UNESCO-designated Kumano Kodo trails are worth the day trip.

Hotel Tip

Ago Bay is where the famous ama women divers search for pearls. Take this rare chance to have dinner with a diver in her humble hut, to learn about this ancient lifestyle.
